Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Kendall Jenner Get Wrapped up in the Kimono Cardigan Trend

It’s official, celebrities are trading in their blazers for kimonos. Hailing from Asia, the cocoon silhouette has been spotted on a bevy of street style regulars. Take Kendall Jenner, who was seen wearing a printed duster rendition of the throw-on-and-go piece that elevated her off-duty model ensemble. The 20-year-old tied her look together with a mashup of on-trend pieces, including frayed, cropped jeans and a black, lace bralette layered over a white, midriff-baring T-shirt—a subtle nod to the underwear as outerwear movement. Meanwhile, Rihanna showed off her killer legs in a floral, belted, kimono dress signed Dolce & Gabbana. The latest A-lister to take the kimono cardigan trend out for a spin is Beyoncé. The Lemonade singer—who was recently honored with this year’s CFDA fashion icon award—played with clashing prints by way of a tropical iteration and a striped, rainbow pencil skirt. Fashion editors have been rocking the style for some time though,’s Managing Editor Caterina Minthe—snapped by Le 21eme’s Adam Katz Sindig—was spotted during the 2016 Fashion Week season in a Stine Goya kimono paired with deep blue Seafarer jeans.
